In case you notice a major increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and in case after you examine the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from countries around the world or from other servers, your Internet site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random Internet sites aiming to log in to their administrator area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any sort of article where this kind of an option is offered. Regrettably, that's something rather frequent these days, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots won't be able to access your website in any way. Needless to say, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans include an IP blocking tool, so if you'd like to restrict the access to your Internet sites, you'll be able to do this with just several clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that's super easy to use. Once you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you shall just need to select a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system will permit you to block whole networks too, so if you type in 123.123.123., for example, this will block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your websites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with simply a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to block IP addresses with ease and stop the unwanted traffic to any Internet site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account with us, considering the fact that we offer a rather easy-to-use tool to do that, which is included with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you haven't dealt with such problems in the past, you won't have any difficulties, because our tool provides a very user-friendly interface. Once you navigate to the IP blocking section of the CP, you'll find a full list of all the domains and subdomains you have added in the Hosted Domains section. All you have to do to block an IP address is pick the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP in the box below. The change will take effect straightaway, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is equally quick.
